About the Author:

Barbara J. Henry is a former high school educator named in Who's Who among High School Teachers. She is also a small business owner who has a law degree. Although this is her first book, Barbara enjoys writing; some of her articles have appeared in The National Journal of Teachers of High School English, and The American Educator. Barbara is an avid reader who is particularly fond of legal mysteries, historical fiction and tackling crossword puzzles, especially those appearing in The New York Times. Barbara lives in River Forest, Illinois, next door to Oak Park, where the acclaimed writer Ernest Hemingway was born and lived for many years.


Barbara J. Henry's "Journaling" is an inspiring and deeply personal book. Never shying away from sharing a personal story, or a tidbit, Ms. Henry very clearly describes how journaling changed her life and how-and in which areas- it could change yours as well. Divided into short, easy-to-read chapters, the book illustrates many areas in which the simple act of writing, or journaling, could and would be helpful to anybody struggling with any kind of a challenge. Yes, I realize this is a tall order-anybody and any kind of a challenge!-yet Ms. Henry presents a compelling argument for this statement. She points out that anybody, regardless of age or sex, could write and would find benefits in doing so. She also directs our attention to the many areas where most of us could use some help-from basic problem solving and clearer thinking in general, to organizing in every sense of the word, and then to the specific area of self-awareness and growth as well as personal matters and personal crises. If you are shaking your head, saying to yourself that you do not have any such challenges, I dare you to just read the table of contents and then declare that there are no areas in your life where you wish for more clarity or better problem-solving skills. Most of the twenty-five short chapters follow the same pattern-a few pages discussing the given topics,an inspiring quote that summarizes the chapter,and several questions helping the reader to clarify the particular topic in their mind. The personal twist on each of the topics is what I found the most endearing in this book- I value an author who is not afraid of putting him-or herself straight into the work. While I wished for more clarity on the difference between journaling and diary writing, as well as possibly more little tips on exactly how to start the journaling process, I found "Journaling: Twenty Plus Reasons Why You Should Start Now"by Barbara J. Henry, a warm and stimulating book. If you are looking for a better way to solve your daily problems and annoyances, why not give it a try? --Reader Views, reviews by readers for readers.
